VOLUNTEERS are at the heart of the operation of Coffs Harbour, Bellingen and Nambucca Community Transport. They work on the board, as drivers and as bus attendants.

In service since 1986, they provide low-cost transport alternatives for people living with a disability, people who are elderly or fragile-aged and people who are disadvantaged or isolated. Their approach is to provide people with opportunity and access without discrimination by providing quality transport to clients.

They provide local and long distance transport including regular door-to-door shopping trips; social and recreational outings; medical appointments; hospital and other visiting; war veterans transport; Aboriginal transport; other services and appointments.

With the National Disability Insurance Scheme being rolled out from July 1, 2017, Coffs Harbour, Bellingen and Nambucca Community Transport is also now a Registered NDIS Service Provider.

They can assist you and your family in planning for all your travel and transport needs and offer a range of specialised mobility services including modified vehicles to transport wheelchairs and other support aides. Services are financed through social enterprise with funding support from the Australian Government and the NSW State Government. They provide transport for the Commonwealth Home Support Program, the Community Care Support Program, the Community Transport Program, the Assisted School Travel Program, NSW Health and Primary Health Networks.

At the Living Well Expo, volunteers and staff will consult with NDIS participants and give them a detailed quote on providing transport alternatives.
